Fire danger to remain 'High' in region

THE fire danger rating for the Fraser Coast is expected to remain high until at least Saturday.

When the fire danger rating is high, it means fires can be controlled but loss of life and damage to property is still a threat.

People living in the area are encouraged to be prepared for the risk of bushfire, and monitor the situation for any changes.
